Throughout my journey as an artist for the past 30 years, I've found myself at the crossroads of self-evaluation, shaking my head, wondering why I have pursued such a challenging path. Then, my commitment to my life and work is renewed each time someone shares how a performance touched them. How a class or workshop taught them to re-engage with their surroundings. When fabrics weave together in my studio to become a beautifully intricate tapestry of art. All of these things fill me with the gratitude and resolve to never give up on myself or anyone else. This certainty is hard-won, yet, one that fills my life with purpose and a renewed dedication.

I am dedicated to, and define my work by, the belief that we cannot move forward without working together. This is the reason I am joining this revolutionary idea that we have the opportunity to equally support each other. With Patreon as a resource, this possibility is closer and more attainable than I have ever imagined.

As a 54-year-old dancer, artist, and mother of three, time has been both my greatest ally and my greatest challenge. I carry the irreplaceable years of training and experience into my work, interactions, and collaborations. I am grateful for the wisdom I have received – and I have also received this wisdom through physical limitations that have guided my dance and have taught me how to more fully live in this world. These physical limitations have shown up for me in the form of life long chronic pain as an autoimmune disease called Lupus. And I have done my best at pushing through and creating work, no matter what.

I am now faced with the greatest lesson of my life... learning how to remain vulnerable about my struggles while continuing to open up to new solutions. I am on a quest to create a sustainable system of support so that I can better care for myself, and so that I may continue to offer my work to my community and to the world.

And to do this, I need your support.

Goals
22 of 300 patrons

3 is my favorite number! When I reach 300 patrons, I will start a storytime podcast for Patrons. I will share life stories, some will be stories that hold some of my favorite performance moments over the last 30 years and some will be stories I will share from requests and questions from my patrons.
